Good job on the snow removal this round City of Reno. But you might want to rethink the timing of your announcements. I received your announcement entitled “City of Reno is Prepared for Incoming Storm” at 11:07am Thursday–was it even still snowing?
M&H Realty Partners, the new owners of the Parklane Mall, are seeking a zoning change that would allow them to build just about anything they damn well please.
I’ve been hearing that the Grand Sierra was going to re-open their basement movie theater, but I wasn’t sure until I saw it on Forest Hartman’s blog. The existence of the Keystone Theater was one of the reasons I decided I could live in a city as small as Reno–independent movies are very important to me. In fact, I began my love affair with Clive Owen there after seeing the great Mike Hodges film, Croupier during a visit. Of course, because my life is filled with irony, the Keystone closed just before I actually moved to Reno. Thank god the Riverside opened at about the same time.
Dana Milbank cracks me up…prebuttal speeches force preemptive speeches before we even get to the actual speech and the subsequent rebuttal speeches.
Watch the video of Chuck Hagel’s response to Bush’s references to Iran and Syria in his “surge” speech during Condoleezza Rice’s testimony yesterday:
“I have to say, Madam Secretary, that I think this speech given last night by this president represents the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since Vietnam.” Audience members in the hearing room clapped as Hagel concluded, “I will resist it.”
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is full of some pretty formidable folks, and Condi looks positively constipated testifying before them. I almost feel sorry for her–almost. She made her bed with this president.
Pew Research Center released a report on “Generation Next” and it may contain some bad news for the future of the Republican Party. This new generation’s political outlook is more tolerant on social issues like immigration, race, and homosexuality. And at least for now, they are more likely to identify themselves as Democrats.
And Rep. George “Democrats Don’t Care About Families” Kingston (because Nancy Pelosi said he had to work five days a week) takes on the poverty issue. Apparenly, All of you lazy jerks who are only working three jobs at minimum wage and are still poor simply need to find a fourth job and someone to marry their broke ass. Dipshit.
